We spent only one night at this resort unfortunately. We loved every moment of our stay, we will return asap and hopefully we can spend a little longer next time. We stayed in a cabin it was great. The lady at the check-in counter could not have been more helpful. Food at the restaurant [lunch dinner and breakfast] great.

Chris, in the Restaurant ensured we were made welcome & topped up Breakfast supplies.Lunch was very generous helpings. Terry, in the Wine Tasting area... More

We signed up to a package deal and were promised a luxurious resort experience. The two problems were: - Its not a luxurious resort – it’s more a tired motel - They refused to give us the package we paid for – we were supposed to get vouchers on check in but were only given a fraction of what was...

We travelled by car from Canberra to the Hunter Valley Resort. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day/nights at HVR. What stood out apart from the quality food, wine, location etc was the quality of the staff - Fiona in Reception; Ashleigh & Chris in the Restaurant; & Bill, Nathan & Terry in the Wine Tasting and School. Since our return... More

There have been some less than positive reviews of Hunter Resort lately and I hope this report helps. The Resort is several years old. In its early days it obviously established a model of winery based hospitality for others to follow and, in some cases, improve upon. We spent one day at the resort which was overcast and rainy. On... More

I have attached my letter of thanks Dear Hunter Resort, I just wanted to thank you and the staff at the Hunter Resort for the care and attention that you gave to us when we ran our carers course for people with motor neurone disease last week on the 13th and 14th March. Each person completed an evaluation of the... More

Back in September last year we stayed here, and we stayed on a weekend when there were issues with the water filtration system, so the water in our bathroom was brown. We left a review on TripAdvisor, and Philip (the owner) commented and apologised, and offered us a free night's accommodation. We thought this was extremely generous of him, and... More

Labelled a 4 star resort although maybe a 2.5/3 star being generous. This place was full of dis-organisation. We had a some activities added to our stay via the hotel and there was no direction on how or where to redeem these, when we tried to redeem the food for the children we were told they did not know about...

Set next to the blue tongue brewery on Hermitage road, this is labelled a 4 star resort. It was quiet and clean but the mattress was tired and the accommodation is that which you would stay in in order to visit the Hunter valley, not lounge about in. Wooden cabins in a quiet spot probably built 20 years ago and... More
